Calling All Spirits showcases an exploration into the more uncanny aspects of life. In both fiction writing and poetry, this collection essentially wanders into various aspects of the post- Enlightenment societal void and communicates different characters and personas grasping at a more wholesome, organic existence amidst the processed and sometimes degradative confusion of contemporary life. Through offering different perspectives and putting words to multiple concerns, a goal of Calling All Spirits is to prioritize the works over any less important concerns about, for example, how closely a poem’s speaker resembles the author. Allowing a writer to freely voice a concern within an artistic safe haven that ought not to foster simplistic stigmas is a great privilege and one that should show the complexity of life experience, as Calling All Spirits seeks to do.
